Sunday Dinner Rolls

. . . or Monday, or Tuesday, or . . . This is another fairly simple roll recipe that is worth trying. Maybe take a day and make all the roll recipes we found and see what's best, or make a few dozen dozen and eat nonstop. Bread is good. --Mark


1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 pinch white sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup warm water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
4 cups all-purpose flour


In a large bowl, stir yeast, 1/4 cup warm water, and a pinch of sugar.

In another bowl, beat eggs in 1 cup warm water; add oil and salt. Mix egg mixture into yeast, and add sugar. Gradually add flour. Cover with a damp cloth, and allow to stand at room temperature for 1 hour, then place in the refrigerator and allow to rise overnight. This dough is rather sticky, and will raise to at least twice it's size.

Divide the dough into 4 equal parts. Roll each section out into a circle on a floured board or wax paper. Cut into pizza slice shapes, and roll slices large end to small end. Place on greased flat baking pans, and allow to rise for 2 hours.

Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 8 minutes.
